We go by the rule that we trust that you will respect our home the way you respect yours and hope that you will feel at home in Amsterdam. We support good health, therefore smoking the the apartment is not permitted.
Bij aankomst werden we gezellig en gastvrij met een praatje ontvangen door Sumita. De kamer is netjes, schoon en bevindt zich op een toplocatie in Amsterdam: in het centrum tussen de mooie grachten, maar uit de drukte van de toeristische attracties. De kamer bieft een eigen badkamer en een klein keukentje.
Naast een fijne kamer biedt Sumita nog een aantal extra benefits zoals leenfietsen en kun je de dag van vertrek je koffers de gehele dag bij de kamer laten, waardoor je ook nog een lange laatste dag in Amsterdam kunt hebben.
Sumita was the best. We arrived early and she had a place for us to put our luggage. The fact that we were able to use her bikes made the stay that much better. The apartment is a bit tiny but was plenty of room for my wife and I. Our previous hotel room in Amsterdam was actually even smaller than this apartment. The location was fantastic, just a quick walk from central station, yet in a great part of town. I would highly recommend staying at Sumita's next time you are in Amsterdam.
Sumita is the friendliest host one can meet. Always smiling, she really helped us in planning our local sightseeing and also guided us about places to eat as we are vegetarians. She offered us her bicycles for faster commute. The place was as shown in the picture and very centrally located. It was very cozy for me and my son. Highly recommended for any one who wants a friendly and homely stay in Amsterdam
We had an amazing time at Sumita's apartment. It was small cozy but clean, cool (as in temperature), and close to where we wanted to go. She was super helpful, when we had a delay in our arrival she left clear instructions for us to get into the bnb (especially since we didn't have wifi or cellular!). She also checked in on us with messaging to make sure we made it. She provided bikes, a map, and helped us (ahead of time) secure museum kaarts for the anne frank house and rijks museum. she provided some recommendation for food, which we were only able to hit one of them (Vinny's) which was spot on! she even came by to help us check out the next day and make sure we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend this place and loved having Sumita as a host! Beware the bathroom is small but it wasn't a problem for us! Also cold floors, so slippers might be useful! We had some from a precious hotel stay and they came in handy. Thanks again Sumita!!
Tout d’abord, l’emplacement est parfait, dans Jordaan, au bord d’un canal, dans un quartier particulièrement calme et sûr, à deux pas de la gare, du centre, du quartier rouge, du marché, des différents canaux à parcourir et d'une superette. Vraiment très bien !
Ensuite, le petit appartement est coquet, bien équipé, propre et totalement indépendant. Aucun problème pour rentrer tard ! D’ailleurs Sumita n’habite même pas là mais est joignable à tout moment au téléphone.
La douche bien chaude est aussi appréciable après des longues journées de visite. Et il y a une connexion Wifi qui fonctionne bien.
Le logement est parfaitement décrit dans la présentation, à un point près qu'il est quelques marches en contrebas de la route comme beaucoup d'appartements à Amsterdam, ce qui ne pose aucun problème si ce n'est qu'il n'y a pas de vue par les fenêtres.
Sumita est un petit bout de femme énergique et plein de bonne humeur qui connait bien sa ville, peut donner toute sorte de conseils et même prêter des vélos. Elle vous met à l'aise dès votre arrivée.
Et cerise sur le gâteau, elle nous a aussi prêté deux cartes de musées, ce qui nous a permis de visiter bien plus de choses que prévu et gratuitement en plus ! Une énorme économie (+ ou - 15€ par entrée et par personne) !!!
Nous avons passé une semaine dans son logement, avons fait beaucoup d’économies aussi en prenant nos petits déjeuner sur place, en nous faisant des sandwichs pour midi, et à manger le soir (Attention : la vie et les restaus sont chers à Amsterdam !).
En bref, nous avons passé un super séjour sans aucun problème.
Merci Sumita, nous n’hésiterons pas un instant avant de réserver à nouveau ta chambre d’hôtes.
Il est à peu près certain que nous reviendrons dans cette ville sublime à tous points de vue !
Alors à bientôt peut être !
Philippe et Chantal

nice Belgian restaurant
Great street to go shopping. It is still somewhat local. You have an eclectic collection of local shops, organic deli's and bars
For those who love to experience a little bit of Spain during a during rain in Amsterdam, go here for some authentic Spanish hams.
For some nice hot exercises and funky movements. This is the place to be.
For the best Dutch apple pie in town! A must if you are visiting Amsterdam.
Tourist hot spot. To get a great view from the top, go to the department store of Peek and Cloppenburg or to the Bijenkorf.
Every Saturday we have the organic food market. Just cross a few bridges for some nice wholesome food.
Nice Italian restaurant.
cheap market on Saturday
Great Indian food
For party people with a hint of bling.
If you want to hear typical Jordaans "singing" basically sad songs. Go here. It cannot be more typical than this. Made in de Jordaan! Of course accompanied with some Heineken!
Better to go in the evening and better to buy the ticket on-line.
Monday morning mark(phone number hidden).00. Enjoy shopping for textile and if you are lucky you can even buy an original designer's item for a fraction of the original price.
Great Italian food
For your local pizza go here.
For movies go to a small cozy movie theater go here.
Great place to hang out for coffee and chill.
The 9 narrow streets that run across the 3 main canals of the Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht and Herengracht gives you a great sense of really being in Amsterdam and enjoy crossing the bridges.
Stylistic building. Go to the top floor for a nice view of the skyline of Amsterdam. Entrance is free.
Bohemia at last!
Nice place to go for a run. Plus there are regular venues and events held here. Like the Sunday Market or Rolling Kitchen. It is also a hotspot for creative people.
